Debian Server Package

From MusicBrainz Wiki


To create debian packages for, and to support, a MusicBrainz server.


Packages will include:

  • musicbrainz-db-schema (creation of the database)
  • We'll probably want to use the new dbconfig-common package for database manipulation.
  • musicbrainz-server (web stuff)

Due to its size and continual changing nature, the actual data will probably not be packaged. A script to automatically fetch and import data may be appropriate in the musicbrainz-db-schema package, however.

Additional packages will also have to be made for dependencies that are not yet packaged in Debian.
